  2. Koning scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting: A candy like sweetness (almost too sweet for my liking) combines well with sour notes and spices.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla, fruity with some lemon candy. There are floral notes and some cardamom too. Reminds me somehow of zuppa inglese, the Italian desert.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sugary sweet with a sour edge: zure matten! Sugared lemons, rose water, fresh herbs like dill and coriander. Becomes a bit oaky.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Waves of fresh and sweet fruits (strawberry?), with some candy sours and a sharp spicyness.

  3. JoachimV scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Oranges, sweets (candy), peach, pineapple and kiwi.
    • Taste
      Oranges, lemons, pineapple and back the sweets.
    • Finish
      Fruity and drying. Medium to long.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, fruity and floral. Vanilla, sweet citrus, apple, pineapple, peach, candied. Initially slightly soapy, but this fades in due time.

      Vanilla, citrus, pineapple, floral, anise, lavender, some grassiness, quite peppery, sawdust.
    • Finish

      Light and not that long: vanilla, honeyed, citrus, overripe peach, still quite floral and greenish with some lavender, ending on a drying pepperiness.

  10. wncvirus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet notes of sherry, apricots, orange, peach
    Taste: With the first sip noticeable fruity notes - apples, oranges with peaches and notes of caramel. The whole flavor is covered with spicy notes that are slightly aggressive in taste.
    Rating: 87 | 100 Quite long finish slightly warming up. The position is a bit too aggressive in taste for me.

  16. DistiLesha scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet, fruity, I caught salty bacon.
    • Taste
      Sweetish but not sweet enough for the classic Speyside. Oily. Notes of hay. There is bitterness and pungency of Highlander, a classic duchess with a touch of the very rubber from the lemonade cork.
    • Finish
      Not very long, light, with light sweetness and medical rubber.

  21. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet, pear, some apples. But there is also a candy note. Little hint of tropical fruit and some hay. It is rather delicate tough.

    Taste:
    Sweet, caramel, quite some tropical notes, vanilla and other clear bourboncask influences. Again the typical hay notes on the background

    Body:
    Oily and creamy

    Finish:
    Medium length. Again the tropical fruitiness and the obvious bourbon influences.

    Price:
    The current €120,- is quite oke.

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample.

  22. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet, light pear and apple. Vanilla pudding, citrus, orange and a little peach.
    • Taste
      Vanilla pudding, pear, peach, apple peel. A little caramel and a whiff of smoke. It's quite agressive in the mouth despite the sweetness and not so high ABV (for a cask strength), so a splash of water doesn't do harm. That releases quite some honey.
    • Finish
      Pear, vanilla pudding, strawberry, peach, caramel and smoke.
